If you need a new perspective, just take a look at the following video. The man in it is Felix Baumgartner. In October of 2012 he was the first man to break the sound barrier without mechanical help. He jumped out of a balloon that was 24 miles above the earth. Technically, he was sky diving, but he free fell from the balloon to earth for close to five minutes. It only took him 11 minutes to reach the earth. He had a camera connected to him, and in October of 2012 it was streamed. According to these sources, this is new footage.
He nearly blacked out when he hit 800 miles per hour, so please remember that this video can upset a queasy stomach. The action beings at 1:40.
